Mounting a Marathon Plus

May 24th, 2010 by Bill | Filed under Schwalbe, Tips and Techniques, Tires.

Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires can be hard to mount on a rim. They’re big, thick, heavy tires. The folks at Spa Cycles, in the U.K., have published a video that shows a good way to get a Marathon Plus, or any difficult tire. onto a rim.

    Bead lubricants can make the tyre go on more easily and the bead seat correctly. Tire butter, tire snot, or Schwalbe Easy fit all make the job much easier. The toe clip straps are a nice touch, though.
